Programa Velasco’s mission is to educate and empower children and families to
create social change in El Salvador. They do this through three programs:
- CHILDREN’S SCHOLARSHIPS
- FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
- WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT PROJECT
We have been working with Programa Velasco since 2010. We migrated their site from a blogspot site to it’s own domain where we installed Joomla. We have offered training and support for their staff and volunteers. In 2015 we launched their current site which is fully responsive (displays properly in all devices). We have also helped them with donation collection, assist them with social networking, their email newsletter as well as some on-site tech support.

RUBARB (Rusted up beyond all recognition Bikes) is an all volunteer run space, which means no bosses, no workers and no pay. They all participate in making the space, tools and parts organized and accessible, and any money that is received goes toward tools and parts and all other basic needs of the shop. Their primary goal is to provide adequate tools and competent help to meet the needs of those who desire to build and repair bikes. RUBARB is an educational space where we all can share and learn from each other’s skills and experiences.
We met up with RUBARB while in New Orleans. While they were trying to recover and rebuild bikes, we wanted them to have a great web presence to help them find volunteers and funding. The site is built in Joomla with a custom template designed by Lowthian Design Works. We have also helped them with training and obtaining free website hosting as a non-profit.

ArtEgg Studios is a 50,000 sq. ft. former produce warehouse for American Beauty Eggs, Butter and Turkeys. Located in the Broad Street Cultural Products District in New Orleans, ArtEgg was founded in 2001 by Dr. Esther R. Dyer. Since inception, ArtEgg has been a creative space for creative people. Devastated after Katrina, ArtEgg was totally renovated, restored and upgraded to include sustainable design features such as bamboo flooring, solar tracking skylights, solar tubes, energy efficient fixtures. The first floor has intact produce coolers converted to storage for art collections, studios for artists and musicians, workshops for set builders, and offices for nonprofits and entrepreneurs. They are proud to be home to Break Out!, Kids Rethink New Orleans, Roots of Music, Women of Vision, the LGBT Community Center, the Change for Development Foundation and the Heritage Foundation for Arts and Cultural Sustainability.
We started helping ArtEgg while in New Orleans in 2006. We helped them move to a Joomla Website using 3 templates for three different programs all in the same website. We have also helped them with finding new hosting, some training and on-site tech support work.

Founded in 1911 by the Reverend Henderson Dunn, Hume Child Development Center is one of the oldest pre-school education centers designed to serve African American children in the South and probably in the country.
We teamed up with Hume in 2006 while working in New Orleans. We helped them find free website hosting as a non-profit and helped them create their first website (built in Joomla). We have also helped them with on-site tech support.
